Some of My Favorite Freezer Friendly Meals

I plan to cook dinner most nights, but inevitably one or more of those nights it doesn’t happen because of forgotten ingredients, me not feeling like cooking, or The Littlest Apple having a major meltdown right about the time I need to be cooking dinner.  These would all be ideal situations for pulling a meal from the freezer.   It helps tremendously when I have meals prepped and ready to go with minimal work.  These types of meals were huge lifesavers when The Littlest Apple spent an unexpected 10 days in the NICU at birth and then had a few months of non-stop screaming in the evenings (aka colic).  Dinner was the least of my worries then, and it was such a comfort to be able to pull out some of these favorite foods from the freezer and get them ready to go in a matter of minutes (and usually with one hand, while holding the baby!).

With the holiday season approaching and lots going on, it would be super helpful to have a freezer full of meals.  I’m hoping to get at least a few prepped and frozen in the next week or so.

Here are a few of my favorite freezer friendly meals:

Easiest Ever Crockpot BBQ Chicken
